FAR HILLS, N.J. (June 14, 2015) – Tickets for the 2016 U.S. Open Championship, conducted by the United States Golf Association (USGA) and scheduled for June 16-19 at Oakmont (Pa.) Country Club, are available for purchase Monday, June 15.

Next year’s U.S. Open Championship, the record ninth at Oakmont Country Club, promises to generate strong spectator interest. In 2007, the most recent U.S. Open at Oakmont, Angel Cabrera held off Jim Furyk and Tiger Woods by one stroke to win his first major championship. With only 30,000 tickets available per day, the USGA encourages early response for this highly anticipated championship.
